When it comes to summer purchases, pretty dresses rank high on our wish list. There's just something about slipping into a frock that makes you feel instantly fabulous. Incredibly easy to style—all you need is a couple of key accessories or, for days spent indoors, your slippers—a dress always makes for a foolproof outfit solution. Now that temperatures are peaking, even those who remain faithful to their loungewear sets can't resist switching up their daily wares to include a dress or two. And, as it happens, there are a handful that we keep seeing over and over again on social media.
While there are plenty of options out there to choose from, there are a few trending dresses we (and our fashion friends) are especially into this season, all of which you'll find below.
They all look different at first glance, but there are some commonalities among this selection. First and foremost, they're all comfortable; whether it's A-line skirts or knitted textures, every dress on our list is a pleasure to wear—and not just aesthetically. These are dresses you could throw on to go for your daily walk, picnicking in the park, working from home, or napping on the sofa. Many bright hues and playful prints are coming through, too, which fulfil our need to dress more joyfully this season.
From the latest offering from cult brand Faithfull the Brand to an update on Tove's best seller as well as a frock from the under-the-radar label fashion editors love, below are the trending dresses set to define your summer style.
Style Notes: Every season, Rixo serves up dresses that are just waiting to be given cult status. This summer, it's all about the brand's mermaid motif, which we think looks so striking in this tomato red midi.
Style Notes: Yes, even minidresses have been given a comfortable spin in thin-knit textures. This With Jéan dress is proving so popular with the social media set right now, we doubt it'll be around for long.
